    I mean, I have my own plans and all, but I figured I should mention that I was using Zadah as a kind of 'lost land' feel. I will also say that Oberon has certainly been around for long enough to have visited the country first-hand, but I wanted to the elements around it deliberately vague. Like Dorian said, it is your Story Element. I'm just using it for world domination some fun writing.
    I resolve to never say "no" to someone intereted in using Zadah as a story element. I hope they will let me work with them to keep the place magical and mysterious! The Index fits right in. You can bet that anytime Danny hears about a Zadah Artifact, he'll become very interested.

    Has Danny been to the Library? Just... wondering.

    3SecondCultist - I think Intelligence would apply both for using mental magic and resisting it. I'm unsure about Charisma, so I'll let Jade and Dark weigh in.

    Alternately, I would propose that the flavor informs the mechanics, but stays consistent once chosen. As Sylvia's telepathy is a product of rigorous academic training, I agree that Intelligence would be most appropriate for both use and resistance. If someone were to flavor their telepathy as being able to read a crowd with uncanny accuracy, or the force of their personality being so great that it actually inserts itself into other's minds, then Charisma would be the key.

    tl;dr: wizards vs. sorcerers

    Fair enough (and I definitely agree on consistency). However, the Gifts so far have been pretty established as being something spontaneous and outside of a structured magical system, which to me points far more towards sorcery than wizardry. I figured that the Sorcerer's College was more about training, and less about academics (which is what the actual Academy is for).

    The rule is that an advantage is going to apply in any situation where it makes sense. If you can sensibly explain how being Charismatic helps you in situation X, then you get to use that advantage. However, neither Intelligence nor Charisma are inherently tied to magic like they are in D&D. Neither advantage would apply to blowing up things with fire magic, for example.

    I think Sylvia could use Charisma for telepathy if she were using charm or flirtation to distract her target or put them at ease. It makes sense for people to be less guarded mentally if they're having fun or really engrossed in conversation.

    Edit: Whereas Intelligence is probably always going to apply to mind reading or enchantment.

    Also, Logain and his sister aren't Loirian and neither speak Loirian as a native language. They both grew up in or near Azhahad. Logain is nearly fluent though and practices the tongue of his conquered people constantly. Despite being conquerors, House Valere is fairly popular among the remaining Loirian nobility. Logain takes the Loirian culture and language quite seriously and is beginning to think of himself as Loirian... as well as trying to appeal to the people he will one day rule.

    Yeah, that's why I've been sitting back too. I'd love to imagine that quick exchange of bluffs and then there's just a few minutes of nods, sipping drinks and whispers along the lines of, "Man, that really was clever, wasn't it?" and grumbles of assent.

    I understand that Intelligence and Charisma will not always have an impact, but with mental magic it intuitively does. You make a good argument for using Intelligence for the mind reading as well.

    @DarkDM: Do I take your post to understand that Alexander did not actually bring Sylvia back to the house of Oberon? That's fine, by the way (I was sort of counting on it) but I just wanted to make sure that's what you wrote before replying.

    You are correct. Between it being unlikely the guard would let his somewhat sketchy carriage into the Crater District and the fact he doesn't know who stabbed Sylvia or why, Blackhaven chose to withdraw to familiar territory.

    Edit: actually, I have to finish a paper first. But I will have a post up in a couple of hours.

    Posted! I will edit in the other section with the February 25th entry later. But for now, I am rolling for another use of telepathy against Blackhaven. I'm not rolling against detection: she wants him to know what she can do. There are four questions in particular that Sylvia is looking to have answered.

    1) Why did Blackhaven take her to Cormoran House?
    2) How did he know about the attack on her life?
    3) Was he somehow involved in the attack?
    4) What did he hope to gain from saving her?

    Blackhaven's being a jerk, Jonesy is worried, and Balanar is confused as all hell as to what is happening and who is who. So I think we're good on this front? Unless Dark wants to keep ribbing at Breezeborn and the other Guards.

    Resisting...

    (1d6)[1]

    Hah, nope.

    1) For the reasons outlined in the OOC. He doubted the guards at the gate to the Crater District would let him pass and he didn't know where Sylvia's assassin might strike next.
    2) He just knew.
    3) Nope.
    4) He's not sure yet.

    *edit*
    Also, I'm unclear on how Sylvia knows what Blackhaven looks like.

    Who saw what and why and where?
    Let him give a full description
    Let him answer to Ella!"

    "Captain, would you believe it?
    I was quickly pulled aside.
    By this raving, unknown madman.
    I swear I've never seen his hide!"

    "Look upon this fine collection
    Crawled from underneath a stone
    This swarm of worms and maggots
    Could have picked you to the bone!
    *Stops and stares at Blackhaven, eye to eye*
    I know this man over here
    I know his name and his trade
    And on your witness, M'sieur,
    We'll see him suitably paid."


    ...........

    *Clap**Clap*

    "Welcome m'am. Sit yourself down,
    And geeet the best gang lord in town.
    Seldom do you see
    Kind men like me.
    A man of good intent,
    Who's content to be..... *Bum bum bum*
    Master of the Harbor, dolling out the charm
    Ready with a knife and a steady arm,"

    "Servant to the poor!"
    "Savior of the faint!"
    "*Growls* Scoundrel, thug, and a miscreant."
    *Dances with Balanar* "Glad to do a friend a favor, doesn't cost me to be nice!"
    "But nothing gets you nothing, everything's got a little price....."
    ..... I can dream can't I? :P Now for Creed to quote me and say something snarky. And the circle of life will be complete.
    In other words, this gonna be good.
    You have earned my approval, Tychris. Treasure it.

    *edit*
    Also

    "That inspector thinks she's something
    But it's me who runs this town
    And my brothel never closes
    And the curtain's never down
    Trust Blackhaven, have no fear
    Don't you worry Balanar,
    You can always find me here"

    I was old when the pharaohs first mounted
    The jewel-decked throne by the Nile;
    I was old in those epochs uncounted
    When I, and I only, was vile;

    At the end of the post you're another day older.
    And that's it for the NPCs who're part-poor.
    'Tis a struggle, 'tis a bore,
    and there's precious few lines to be giving;
    one more post standing about, what is it for?
    One less post to be living.

    At the end of the post you get brushed off the shoulder,
    And you're savvy enough to feel an awful chill.
    And the PCs hurry past;
    they don't hear the little ones crying,
    and the plot sure is coming on fast, ready to kill.
    One post closer to dying.

    "Have you seen how the players are fuming today?"
    "With their terrible keyboards and wandering hands?"
    "There's not enough advants to give 'em their way,
    take a look at their tickets, you'll see where they staaaand!"

    At the end of the post you get nothing for nothing!
    And the rest of the group has forgotten your name!
    Just keep expositing hard, just exposit as long as you're able,
    Just exposit 'till you drop, or this plot just won't make it to 'fable.'
    And you've got to give your booaaast!
    At the end of the post.


    At the end of the post there's a post being written!
    And the twists and the turns, they are waiting to spring,
    Like a server overtaxed,
    there's a crash that could come any second.
    There's an anger in the game,
    there's a reckoning still to be reckoned,
    And the PCs will suffer the moooooOOOOOOOST!
    At the end of the post.

    "Do you hear the PC's sing?
    Singing the song of angry men?
    It is the music of a cast
    Who will not be sidelined again!
    When the beating of your heart
    Echoes the typing of the keys
    There is a life about to start
    When the players please!"


    "Will you join in our subplot?
    Who will be strong and post with me?
    Beyond the forum boards
    Is there a world you long to see?"


    "Then join in the post
    Where you'll get to talk with a PC!"


    "Do you hear the PC's sing?
    Singing the song of angry men?
    It is the music of a cast
    Who will not be sidelined again!
    When the beating of your heart
    Echoes the typing of the keys
    There is a life about to start
    When the players please!"


    Will you give all you can give
    So that the plot can now advance?
    Some will fall and some will live
    Will you just post and take a chance?
    The roll of the dice
    Will leave NPC's ****ting their pants!

    "Red! The color of my guy!"
    "Black! All colors have been used!"
    "Red! So what do we do now?"
    "Black! The dialogue gets confuuuuused!"


    *****

    It seems the post is done, I'll give it a quick glance.
    I could be free to sleep, this thing could be my chance.
    Why should I scrutinize? Why should I search for wrong?
    When I have come so far, and sat here for so long?

    To edit, I am condemned.
    If I stay silent... I am damned.

    I am the mod here for dozens of players they all take my word.
    Can I abandon them, how can they post, when my posts are absurd?

    To ninja, I am condemned.
    If I stay silent I... am... damned.

    Who am I? That I condemn this post to utility?
    Pretend it isn't mediocrity?
    These half-hearted and withered lines, that I have wrote in double time...

    Who am I? That I would have this up forevermore?
    Pretend that it would excite and not bore?
    And must my pseudonym of name,
    forever be devoid of fame?

    Must I lie? How can I ever face... a player then?
    How can I ever face myself again?
    I belong to this game we seek,
    I made that bargain just last week.
    It gave me fun when games condemn,
    It gave me stuff to post and trim!

    Who am I?

    Who am I? I'm Jade_Tarem!

    So my friends you see it's true, I sometimes get writer's block too!

    Who am I? I'm-a-su-per-mod!
